SADDLEBACK VOLUNTEER TRAIL MAINTENANCE & CLEARING PROJECTS BEING PLANNED
A note from Peter Stein who is leading the volunteer part of this project. If you are looking for a great way to contribute to Saddleback, please consider joining our new volunteer trail maintenance and clearing crew. We will work with the Jimmy, Jared, and the rest of the Saddleback mountain team to make new trails and maintain all the great trails we have. Our first new trail project will be to glade out the area bounded by Red Devil, Hudson Highway, and the Bee Wee Pass. This area is almost as large as Casablanca and will produce both a large intermediate glade and some exciting steeps. Volunteering is an excellent way to help the mountain, get some great outdoor exercise, and make the Saddleback ski experience even better. To join, one needs to be in good hiking condition and able to walk over rough mountain terrain. You do not need to be able to use power equipment such as chain saws. A great deal of the work simply involves moving cut timber and brush. Our first work dates will be over Labor Day weekend, , and the second work dates will be during Fall Festival, . More will be scheduled through October depending on interest.
